>The politics of Scrooge


Sometimes I wonder if politicians in this country (and probably everywhere) go out of their way to look foolish.  Today’s nonsense in Scotland is about Christmas cards – particularly the design chosen for the First Minister’s card.  The image offends political opponents because the saltire is deemed to be a symbol of nationalism… well, it is our national flag.  Doh!

var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”)); try {var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-11865581-1”);pageTracker._trackPageview();} catch(err) {}

Would I have chosen this card?  No.

Is it worth a political stooshie?  No.

Will our politicians ever grow up?  I’ll leave that for you to decide.

  1. >HideousI agree with your sentiment. I suppose that my frustration is that attacking the choice of a Christmas card, simply reflected poorly on all parties. There are more important things for our politicians to focus on.Actually, I don't think that our politicians playing football would be a very peaceful event in this day and age – bruises, abrasions, broken limbs and recriminations would be the most likely outcome!
